Looking for a car wash before Bimmerfest
 
As you can see, I'm from Texas. Ill be traveling to LA for Bimmerfest and will arrive around 4pm on Friday. Im staying in Culver City at a hotel.

I'm looking for a car wash that y'all locals recommend. I use the two bucket method and can be pretty picky on what touches my paint. I will be bringing ALL my detailing tools so I'll need a place with just water and shade.
A fanatics driveway would be the best option (of course I can give you money for the water) but I understand completely about feeling uncomfortable with that.

So if someone's driveway route doesn't pan out, what are some of the best, safest, car washes I can use that evening/night?

I like to use coin operated washes for the high pressure sprayer so i can blast the wheels/brakes/wheel wells. The Friday before you can be sure i'll be at the one near me to wash my car. maybe we can group together with Jake and have a detailing day. I'm having one myself, regardless. I have the entire Friday off! :thumbsup:

ok that does it, I'll take off Thursday so I can make it earlier Friday. I'm down to meet and have a detail together with all of us. you can PM me the location of the car wash we will meet at. I'll get Jake involved also.
it will be great to exchanging information(see what I can do better and learn) and just see the cars before it gets rowdy Saturday.

We can clean up the cars a bit friday night if you want. Mine will be cover with bugs all over the front and I'll probably take off the painters tape. ;)

+1

I wouldn't even know where to begin looking for food in LA. I usually just drive until I find something.

I'll have ALL my detailing products so we can use them. that's less for you to carry around Jake.
